. that alone is a big step forward. >> or on george bush. >> but that is out there on the internet. you can find that. this is a thing where i agree at the margins, president obama looking presidential. this is good for him. at the same time, hurricane are a better opportunity to make a mistake and hurt yourself than do lasting good. freezing the campaign in place, i'm not sure is beneficial to obama. romney had legitimate momentu momentum. we may not get polling for a few days. it will suspend polls to create the panic needle park for people in this room. they won't get a cross tab fixed. that is an issue. >> we get a poll a second around here. >> the national gallup poll that we get once a month. romney is a slight lead here. you have ohio. the latest rasmussen report has romney ahead. the real clear has president obama with lead in ohio. there is another ohio poll out today that is a tie. 49. it seems like president obama and romney were tied according to many polls. obama people claim he had a lead in ohio. changed the dynamic on the ground. >> we now have a rasmussen poll, the first, i
. this was a 40-state landslide for george bush sr. in 1988. in the middle of the country, the sea of red that went blue, iowa, minnesota and wisconsin. there were local factors in the upper midwest. the farm economy collapsed in the mid-1980s and raeagan's standing was lower than it was elsewhere. republicans were push punished there for the state of economy. think about the auto bailout and the lower unemployment rate there, and i think there is a reward for obama for the sense among those voters that things are getting a little better here than maybe they otherwise would be. >> in a state that feels like it has not been than the country economically for a while, and you cannot understate how important the auto bailout political dynamic has been there. last week after she squabbled over exactly what romney said about the bailout in his op-ed, that was the most viewed "new york times" op-ed. the romney campaign is trying to project strength in ohio. john kasich came out and said romney will win ohio, but the tactics really speak and are telling a different story. they released an ad that
, joy, this is purely partisan observation, w, president george w. bush, did not take this job seriously. not just going into iraq which was wrong. he created a federal agency and turned it into run by what was that guys name? michael brown. >> it was brown. >> brownie. >> alba was the other guy. michael brown, you're doing a great job brownie. a guy from the arabian horse ration association and put him on charge showing how much focus he had on this kind of disaster situation. >> he turned it into a patronage job and republicans like to claim democrats basically use government for patronage but george wumplt bush famously took almost federal agency as a place to park executives. when he put michael brown into fema it was a slap in the face to the notion that the federal government's job is to step in and help people with disasters. he thought anybody could do it. >> thank you, david corn, and thank you, joy. in all seriousness, this is a serious situation, but this brings up the serious decisions the voters have to make. i think we need a federal rogue. coming up, we will continue to tr
. in retrospect we can see both of them, george bush, the entire government structure lied to us and even joked about it with bush saying where are toes nuclear weapons -- those weapons. that was a national lie and crisis. that was an enormous lie that cost this nation trillions of dollars and huge numbers of human life in iraq and ours. that is the first lie. we look at katrina right down here on the gulf coast. we see the government going in wasting money exaggerating police executing people on bridges in new orleans. absolute overstretch. i would turn also to questioning do we trust c-span. has anybody looked at the board of directors of c-span? take the time to look at them. these are all c.e.o.'s of enormous powerful wealthy corporationless. c-span pretends to be egalitarian and democratic. it is no.ess. c-span pretends to be egalitarian and democratic. it is nss. c-span pretends to be egalitarian and democratic. it is no.. c-span pretends to be egalitarian and democratic. it is no. government.l of host: why do you say it is a tool of government? >> everybody says god bless c-span. i think
the same amount of people looking for work as when george bush was president. left presidency, we would have a 10.6 unemployment rate. it's far worse than it looks. >> gretchen: what about this u 6 unemployment rate being 14.6% for october. what's u 6? >> that is everyone who is looking for work part timers, all the people in the workforce rather than just eliminating a lot of people who simply stopped looking. the u-6 some people think it's the real unemployment rate. i mean, i don't think there is any perfect number to read this and we have always used u-3. u-6 i think tells you a little more these days about what's going on in the economy. >> gretchen: if you don't have a job it's 100% unemployment rate so it's all relative. >> that's right. >> gretchen: adjusted unemployment rate unemployment rate of labor force equal to january of 2009 when president obama came. in would actually be 10. a%, correct? >> i think 10.5, 10.6, yeah. very high. you have a bunch of people coming that the market every month that have to be met. i think it's 120,000. certainly it's just stagnation. last yea
debate. brad blakeman is former assistant to george bush and jehmu green is fox news contributor. thanks for joining us. brad, i'll begin with you. an october surprise that no one was counting on. how did the candidates deal with this moving forward. nine days out? >> they must show empathy to those people in harm's way. life and property on the line for these folks. from virginia to new york. wear talking about a storm that can reach as far west as chicago. this is battleground state of ohio is someplace it could have an effect. you have to walk a fine line between being political and also being empathetic to the plight of americans. you have seen that with the romney campaign. they have turned their headquarters in many states into relief centers. they stood down from fund-raising. candidates themselves are not making appearances in these states. i think at a time when a week to go before the election. it's very important that we put first things first, it trumps the national election because it will take care of itself a week from tuesday. let's hope that everything is okay. we'll get
the previous eight? >> yeah, and what is to say that george bush and dick cheney didn't already have their eyes on having haliburton take over fema at that point. >> yeah, maybe you can prove it didn't work -- maybe that's a little conspiracy theory. >> yes, but that has been their pattern. exactly. >> drown it in a bathtub if you will. >> exactly. we have two hour mores of the "stephanie miller show." charlie pierce will be here next hour on the "stephanie miller show." stay tuned. ♪ the governor tomorrow night. she is awesome. we'll be right back on the "stephanie miller show." [♪ theme music ♪] >> this is the "stephanie miller show." as you can tell i am not stephanie miller. i don't even look like stephanie miller. stephanie miller called in sick this morning. she has strep throat so we are holding down the fort. i am chris lavoie. that is jacki schechner. that is jim ward. we're going to be with you for the next two hours talking about hurricane sandy. we have charlie pierce coming up. he has written some great stuff at esquire.com saying that mitt romney
and former chief economic adviser to president george w. bush. welcome back to the show. always great to have you here. >> glad to be with you. gerri: i want to play a little bit of the sounds of our viewers can get a sense of the town. >> short. >> the jobs, where are the 9 million more jobs the president obama promised his stimulus would have created by. [speaking in native tongue] there in china, mexico, canada, countries that have made the sales more attractive for entrepreneurs and business and investment. even as president obama's policies have made it less attractive for them here. thing. gerri: and we have one more jobs report to come. what do you expect? is it going to help romney or the president? >> i don't think it's going to make much difference at all. if you look at the picture that the economy has been traveling through for the past three years now, basically we're in a situaaion where we have continued slow growth. we have growth at about 2 percent per year since the turnaround in june of 2009. i normal recovery should have doubled that, and unless we get to double that kind
me now is howard dean and joe watkins, former white house aide under george w. bush. >> good to see you, alex. how are you? >> i'm well, thank you. >> governor dean, look at this first republican endorsement since 1972 from "the des moines register," after president obama wasn't able to meet with the editorial board in person. do you thiyou think that had an influence. i spoke with rick green, he said it didn't. >> petulence is a major factor in newsrooms. look, they endorsed john edwards in the '04 primary. endorsements don't matter very much in races like this. they matter in down ballot races where people don't know them very much, but i don't think anybody is waiting to decide in this incredibly close election to see what "the des moines register" does. people read editorials because they are written by smart people, but they are read by smart people as well. >> i spoke with anne cornblunt, and she brought up that the tribune in salt lake city endorsed president obama. that state is going red, we know that. but in the state of iowa, sir, a small percentage of people still undeci
with the business of politics is impacted by weather and remember, katrina and what happened with george w. bush's reputation, it's impacted other politicians along the way. let's talk now about the actual event itself. george is a storm chaser. george, have you ever seen-- first of all, it's such a late season hurricane and it's meeting with the arctic air from canada and the low pressure system coming from the west. what's going to -- what's going to happen. first of all, what's it like where you are and what's going to happen? >> well, right now, i'm similar to the weather system from canada, i'm on myself on my way from canada. it's calm right now. getting near the pa-new jersey border getting into position to go down near the water in jersey or long island and i've never seen anything quite like this. been through about 16 hurricanes, including katrina, rita and ike and although this isn't the most powerful storm i've been in, it's certainly the largest and i'm curious to see what's going to happen because it's not often you see this type of combination of weather systems, impacting a pop l
the republican party has blocked it over and over again. george bush put forward a bill that the republican party would not even consider. we of 11 million people live -- living in the shadows were working hard. we need to provide them a path to citizenship without putting a disadvantage to people of waited in line. for young people who were brought here as little children, we need to make sure their dreams and aspirations of a realistic chance of being rely so they can contribute in the communities again. >> one minute left. just a 42nd recap you like to leave the voters with. >> i been ranked as one of the most independent congressman in the united states. take a look at the chicago tribune. they have said dole is the clear choice. frankly i am able to bridge the political divide and reach across the aisle. i have done that for the past 22 months. it being on front on israel issues, being a leader. i am a social moderate. certainly my record stand up for that. -- stands up for that. we've seen this past two years of congress that has put fighting ahead of comprehensive collaboration. we need so
presidents. we saw that with katrina, for instance, and george w. bush. >> woodruff: dan, what about a role for governor romney at a time like this? >> well, it's minimal at this point. i mean he really has to remain essentially invisible. he can't look like he's trying to do anything to exploit the politics of the moment. so in a sense there's more potential up side for president obama, but as susan said more potential down side for governor romney i think it is a matter of just kind of waiting and watching and then deciding at what point he can go back out. i mean one of the issues is, does this short circuit kind of the surge of energy that we've seen around the romney campaign? there's no question that there is more energy out there in the republican base and at events he's been holding. does this affect that in some way that would be detrimental to him? these are all he questions that we can't answer tonight. >> woodruff: because we just don't know when they're going to be back on the trail. there's no way to gauge that. >> that's exactly right. i mean, we obviously know they'll be bac
, the two bushes, bush 41 and bush 43 had disasters in their handling of hurricanes. george h.w. bush with andrew which damaged his political career, it was damaged. of course george w. bush in 2005 with katrina. many people in the bush white house cite that was the low point of his presidency. a lot of dangers also, a lot of political opportunities. >> let's get practical. early voting is happening in these states. maryland cancelled early voting for the day. how much of an impact is that especially for the obama campaign is very much -- >> they are dependent on it, talking about it, counting on it. it does have an impact. it moves romney into an awkward situation. anything he does looks blatantly political or needy he's not in the equation when the country is under siege from a massive storm. >> the president of the united states went to the fema command center which by the way was it cynical or maybe the people running the campaign said we need to get him there. the president was doing what presidents do. what does mitt romney do? >> real quickly this close to the election does it
? >> the changing demographics in columbus, obama won it convincingly in 2008, and george w. bush won it in 2004 with a strong showing in the southeast. it looks as if the romney forces have secured the base in the southeast and going up in the western part of the state and same for president obama in the northeast, and so it is a battle for the center part of the state and 19 counties that make up their part of the state and it is all about the ground game. gretchen, let me say real quick. in 1976, jimmie carter won ohio by 11,200 odd votes and less than one vote for precinct. in 2004 bush won 118,000 and we would have a president carry. that is how close it is right now. >> gretchen: that's how important one vote will be. thank you for your time. >> good to be with you, gretchen. >> gretchen: top lawmakers stepped up questions on who knew what on benghazi. judge napolitano on that next. massive chunk of atlantic city famed boardwalk simply washed away in the storm. we'll have that next. [ female announcer ] you can make macaroni & cheese without freshly-made pasta. you could also cut corners b
advisor to george w. bush. nice to see you long time. doing well. you're going to help us look at the electoral college and we hear it's about ohio can't make it to the white house without winning ohio. >> there are other ways, but in order to get to ohio first, you have to get to three and then two. the three states that you have to get to before you get to ohio are florida, north carolina, and-- are indiana, north carolina and virginia, three historically republican states that president obama won and then you've got to win florida, which has 29 electoral college votes, you get those four states, indiana nobody considers to be a battle ground, if romney gets the three states, florida, north carolina, virginia, then he's set up for, you know, going to ohio, those three states look pretty good. north carolina out of contention, florida looks pretty good. you know, florida four years ago, they had the ballot requests four years ago in florida, the democrats had a 7 point advantage, 45% of the absentee ballot requests, 37 for republicans-- 46-37. this time the republicans have a
